    Not to say that Rodrigo Gracie fights anything like Khabib but would've loved to see the matchup.

    No I wouldn’t. He never worked hard enough to have the cardio to survive this man. I never doubted bjs skill, just his work ethic

    BJ > Khabib in my book. Not sure who would've won, but it's a sick fight. Bj is no Al Laquinta either. I wanna say Prime BJ wins.

    Hypothetically, cardio may not be an issue if BJ manages to hurt Khabib standing and go for an RNC. Michael Johnson hurt Khabib standing. A long grappling battle would've been interesting to watch.

    BJ Penn will forever be remembered for what he could have been instead of what he was.

    For a man who wanted to be known as the greatest ever, that must be a nightmare.

    BJ Penn has never won 5 in a row in the UFC. His greatness is a myth.

    I used to think Matt Hughes was another fighter overrated by the "Hardcore MMA fans" so I looked at his record, and it changed my mind.

    Therefore, I trust my way of evaluating fighters. (1) Watch the fights (2) Compare what you are seeing with the stats and (3) Look at the record.

    BJ Penn has 49% striking accuracy, and 58% grappling accuracy. He has never won 5 in row in the UFC. So, where is all this "greatness" coming from?

    And thats not even including the GSP/Hughes fights from his “prime.” I like BJ but I really think he is incredibly overrated around here

    Khabib would beat every LW ever though, Penn would at least put up a good fight.
